Legislative Update: Last Gun-Control Bill In the 2019 VA General Assembly Is Gone!

Virginia – -(AmmoLand.com)- Your emails and phone calls paid off – SB 1321, Senator Hanger's bill that would have banned a provider of Licensed Day Home from having a firearm on their person for self-defense, was DEFEATED in the Militia, Police and Public Safety subcommittee #1 by a 6 to 0 vote! That was it for bad bills this year.

That same subcommittee passed out 2 pro-gun bills and so did the full committee earlier today:

  • SB 1012, Senator Chase, allows fire and EMS personnel to carry for self-defense. Passed subcommittee by a 4 to 2 vote and full committee by an 11 to 10 vote.
  • SB 1179, Senator Stuart, allows members of the military who are domiciled in Virginia, but stationed out-of-state, to be able to apply for a resident CHP in the county where they are domiciled. Passed subcommittee by a 6 to 0 vote and full committee by an 18 to 1 vote.

SIX PRO-GUN BILLS ARE STILL ALIVE

  • HB 1656, Delegate Cole, private and religious schools can have armed security officers. On Governor's desk.
  • HB 2253, Delegate Pogge, requires State Police to process non-resident CHPs in 90 days. In route to Governor's desk.
  • HB 2548, Delegate Rush, requires information on firearms rights restoration be available to police in the field 24 hours a day. In route to Governor's desk.
  • SB 1012, Senator Chase, allows fire and EMS personnel to carry for self-defense. Headed to House Floor for a vote.
  • SB 1024, Senator Black, repeals the code section requiring “good and sufficient reason” to carry in a church during a service. Awaiting a hearing in the House Rules committee. We are watching this bill very carefully.
  • SB 1179, Senator Stuart, allows members of the military who are domiciled in Virginia, but stationed out-of-state, to be able to apply for a resident CHP in the county where they are domiciled. Headed to House Floor for a vote.

THANKS TO THE MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE MILITIA, POLICE AND PUBLIC SAFETY SUBCOMMITTEE #1 WHO SUPPORTED OUR RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS

Special thanks to the following Delegates for their steadfast defense of our right to keep and bear arms this session in the all-important House Militia, Police and Public Safety subcommittee #1. They took on a very tough task of killing a multitude of gun-control bills and did so unblinkingly:

  • Delegate Tommy Wright (chairman of the Militia, Police and Public Safety committee)
  • Delegate Matt Fariss (subcommittee #1 chairman)
  • Delegate Nick Freitas
  • Delegate Mike Webert
  • Delegate Jeff Campbell

    1. Cadeyrn, yes, most likely, unless it becomes politically expedient, like under McAuliff when he signed the 50 state CC reciprocity law. Currently Northam and company are being pressured to resign due to their racist hypocrisy and sexual assaults. He might feel less pressure if he abides by our Constitution and passes laws that don’t criminalize law-abiding citizens.

    2. You know the Democrat Governor will veto every single gun bill, right?

      He does not care about the will of the people or anything resembling personal rights and freedoms.
